Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Hop Knot IPA is made only from American malt and lots of American hops, which produce a big, broad-shouldered, hoppy beer backed up by a character as warm as, well, Mom and apple pie...

Hop Knot IPA get its peculiar name from the weaving of four different hops added at four separate times during the brewing process. Including our cavernous hop-back, which gets so stuffed with whole leaf hops that we feel genuine guilt for its excess. Hop Knot is an ale that is to be enjoyed with friends, spicy food or any time you need a good hop fix without the harsh bitterness. We hope you enjoy this pioneering beer made in the bold spirit of Americans everywhere.

Pours a clear darker yellow golden color with white head. Light citrus, grass, cereal grain, and some pale malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a bland mix of light citrus and malt. I think this wants to be more of pale ale than an IPA.

A slightly hazy Golden with a half finger of white head that fades quickly. Moderate bubbles rising and spotty lacing. The aroma is mild grapefruit, a little pine, and cracker bread. Same goes for flavor. Very mild bitterness, the grapefruit is there in the flavor but doesn't really pop. Hops are just out front of the malts. The feel is kind of watery, good full carbonation, and overall dry. Slightly above average brew, to me.

Bright reddish-orange with a full, bubbly, off-white head that tops out right above the rim and pushes its pungent aroma into the room. Closer inspection reveals citrus (grapefruit and lemon) and some rind. Taste is more subdued that the aroma would indicate. Barely hoppy and a bit chalky. Some light fruits are noticed. Pretty flat in all domains. Tastes like it's well past any reasonable prime, but there's no decipherable freshness dating on the can. So be it.
